ZURICH (Reuters) - Dinamo Zagreb and Macedonia midfielder Arijan Ademi has had his doping ban reduced from four years to two by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the sporting tribunal said on Monday.

The 25-year-old tested positive for stanozolol following his team's 2-1 Champions League win over Arsenal in September 2015.

CAS said he blamed it on a "supplement he had been prescribed following an injury (that) had been contaminated with the banned substance."
